    Login as root and do

    Code:
    cd /whatever/dir
    chown USERNAME:USERNAME *
    
    where USERNAME is your normal username ..

    Should work. Strange why this problem occured :S

    I think you should do that as root... Since you can`t login as nfsnobody... Use the root account and as he said change the USERNAME to your name not root...

    recompiling the kernel isn't such a big thing and in fact it is really good. You can have a look at gentoo docs on how to compile a kernel. Gives you a good idea. I once saw slackware kernel and realised how bloated these kernels are. Dunno about RH ones. But, it will be good to have your own kernel. I am sure you will find good tuts on that on the net.
